For more information call 408-564-2435.. Please join us! We are part of a network of families and Protestant homes, aka. Church of God, in Northern California who keep Private and Public Duties, especially on Sabbath Days, some of us using the American prayer book as a guide.
Littlewood UE Chapel has occasional public services, mostly for Morning or Evening Prayer, at the Quakers’ Meeting House in San Jose, CA. In between these services, we meet weekly for the daily office, family prayer, spiritual songs, and catechetical study in Fremont. All friends and hearers are welcome, but as a courtesy please contact the Bartletts to RSVP. We'd love to have you! 408-564-2435.
The old Meeting-House was built in 1885 and is located between the Rosegarden and University neighborhoods at 1041 Morse St., San Jose CA. We use the meeting house upon times of clergy visitation or when our lay-reader, Br. Charles Bartlett, convenes public prayer.
We're also willing to schedule long-distance visits with inquiring, or otherwise desirous, people. South Bay householders are ideal since they belong to our abode, but if you live anywhere in Northern California, or the Far West, we'd be happy to arrange a meeting-- helping others with possible lay-mission (Anglican or not). Free books and tracts are also available. Mr. Bartlett can be further contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org well as through social media links at this site.
Upcoming dates for 2019:
Third Advent Sunday, Evening Prayer & Preaching Service. Saturday, Dec. 14th @ 4pm1041 Morse St., San Jose CA.
Our Name: “Littlewood” was the name of the first continuing Anglican bishop in California– William Elliot Littlewood. Consecrated in 1971 by the Free Protestant Episcopal Church (FPEC), Bp. Littlewood founded the Anglican Episcopal Church of North America (AECNA) in 1972 that ranged the Pacific Coast with a half-dozen parishes. The AECNA eventually dispersed, some joining UECNA, others the DSW, as well as APA. Littlewood Chapel began May 30th 2014 as part of the UEC's Missionary District in the West. We hope to imitate W. E. Littlewood's far-reaching gospel-labors as well as the spirit of the 1897 Free Protestants.
